I was digging around on my computer and found a video I recorded a while back on how to use some of the tools in Lightroom’s Library Module to help you keep track of your photos. The goal of the video is to talk about some of the options that are around for you to use rather than focusing on one specific workflow. This particular video focuses more on the basics of the workflow so if you are familiar with the Library, you might find this a little basic. However, if you are new to Lightroom or just sort of fumbling your way around in the Library Module you might find something interesting. Over the course of the video, we talk about metadata, flags, colors, stars, collections and some basic ways to help you get some insights into your photography.
As 2022 starts to draw to a close, it is a time to look back and reflect on the prior year. As photographers that means we should look back at the impact of our photography. In this week’s podcast, I toss out three areas to think about cleaning up before the start of the new year so that you can put your best foot forward for 2023.
